Re-gear quote

What did those of you who re-geared end up paying for it? I got a quote yesterday for $1800 for both axles going from 3.73 to 4.56 once I get 35s. Seemed a little steep to me, but it was my first quote.

Black 2014 JKU Sport S, 6 speed manual, 3.73 rear end, 2.5" AEV Dualsport XT w/ Bilstein 5100s, 255/75/17 Goodyear Wrangler A/T, Rubicon rock rails, front grill mesh mod, Jeep door sill guards, matte black Jeep grill emblem, matte black exhaust, Synrgy upper and lower bolt swap(highly recommend), tires pending...

High, but not completely off the charts. I think most get it done for $1200-1500 area.

Figure $400 an axle for labor + whatever parts. At least that's what seems to be the going rate around here.

Try transmission shops not big name ones but like single owners.
In Florida we have general mechanic shops that will work with you.
I paid 350 per axle with parts. For straight regear. Same shop I paid $2600 for selectable lockers and gears

$1800 with parts doesn't seem bad. If you want a REAL answer post EXACTLY what you were quoted. . .

I would bet that at 1800 for front and rear diff there is also plenty of parts and which parts and who's

Can't answer this until it's known what you were told.

I can not see both axles for $1200 unless it's all real cheap questionable stuff and no carrier split comes into play, or the labor is way off of which i'd question how well they can do the work at that point, and if someone told you 650 to 800 i would run from that place.
